The Egyptian pyramids are one of the world's great wonders. Step inside these superbly illustrated pages and back in time to see how they were constructed so precisely—even without the use of wheels, machines, or iron tools. These magnificent structures aimed not only to keep the departed pharaoh safe from tomb robbers, but also to preserve him from death itself. Images of artifacts and paintings from the era help explain how we know about this bygone world, including the craftsmen, the townspeople, and the pharaoh and his court.
